Hey,

I purchased the kit new 1.5 years ago. As with all my gear I try to keep them in excellent condition. The set did come with a matching snare drum in which I decided to keep. You can see a few of my current and pasted kits on my website. www.awdrums.com
You did a nice job with the setup.
take care
aw
Thanks, wow you have some impressive setups! Amazing playing, too.

I just noticed your new sticks. Nice of you to branch off of Vic Firth for some Vater "Luke Skywalker" Signature Models. Very nice.

Yeah, it's a 10, 12, 14 setup all on RIMS mounts. The seller says this finish is hard to find so it might be tough to find a matching 16 but for now I'm very happy with three toms. I also was surprised to not find a virgin bass, but it doesn't really matter to me, and of course on the bright side I don't have to buy any clamps for the rack toms.
incredible looking kit, i have a question- how versatile is it, configuration wise? for instance, how easily can a rack tom be mounted on a cymbal stand? it looks like it's totally do-able, i'd just like to get your take on it, cheers

Hey, sorry for the very late response. It's very doable. All you need is to buy a clamp (I already have one that is being used to fly the 14-inch tom off of a cymbal stand). It's pretty easy to maneuver things to your liking, although the 14" tom is a little heavy with the die cast hoops and all so the stand's base has to be spread pretty wide. I probably wouldn't like to mount a tom any bigger than 14 inches, in which case I would proceed to floor tom legs.

Actually now that you mention it-- if you buy a gretsch renown, they now come with virgin bass drums, so the toms are mounted off cymbal stands "standard". I guess mine was made before they made the transition to virgin kicks on the renowns.

Real nice snag... That's a great kit, and if it sounds half as good as it looks then you are one VERY lucky man. ;)

And I've gotta say, me being the huge Star Wars nerd I am, I thought that was f&#$%^g hilarious TPT. :)
